I feel I'm thinking like a headless chicken at the moment and am in a constant state of panic. I've posted some background issues to this and would be grateful for any advice as to what I can do to boost our appeal chances.
I'm also unsure as to what I need to show as evidence. Do I just show his school maths and English exercise books? What else can I do?
His academic summary is: -
Attained VR 118 and 115 in the 11+
School VR scores of 125 (=95th percentile) in 2008, and 122 (=93rd percentile) in 2009
At end of Year 5 his results were: - Maths 5c (school report gave him '1's in all areas), English Reading 5, Writing 4b, Speaking 4b, Listening 5
Predicted level 5s for KS2 in English, Maths and Science
Top group for Maths and English
Highly recommended by the HT as a 2:2
He also had an EP report done in Year 3 because his teacher felt he was exceptional at Maths but only average at English and wondered if there was a reason for this. We're not sure whether or not to include this as it shows some very good points but also weakish areas.
The results were (at the time he was age 7.4):
Receptive Vocab: - Age 7, Std 95, Centile 37
Non verbal Reas: - 11.3-11.9; 125; 95 (actually he completed exercise 100% accurately but she didn't have a harder test to give him)
Short Term Memory 15; 135; 99
Single Word Reading 7.0; 96; 37
Single Word Spelling 7.7; 100-105; 50-63
Text reading 10.6; 120
Is this worth including?
Generally, we think he is very bright but with some key weak areas (vocab) but there is a medical explanation for this. Should we admit this?
Thanks for any help
